Burning Down the House


Seeing this graphic make its way around social media recently, the immortal words of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five’s historic rap throb into mind:

It’s all about the money
Ain’t a damn thing funny —
You got to have a con
In this land of milk and honey.

Don’t push me, ’cause I’m close to the edge;
I’m trying not to lose my head.

The Message (1982)
